Eleven-year-old Aubrey is doing just fine on her own. No one can know her mother has abandoned her. No one can know that she is alone now.
But eventually, someone finds out and Aubrey's grandmother comes and things start changing. People start looking for her mother. Aubrey is forced to move far away from her own home and into her grandmother's house. She must start a new school and make new friends and pretend she's just a normal kid. Not the kid whose mother ran away. Not the kid with the scar on her head. And not the kid who was in the car when the accident happened; the accident that changed everything...
Love, Aubrey is a serious portrayal of what it is like to lose everything you know and everything you love. But it is also a story of how kindness and hope can heal.
